The library is an integral part of the early education experience. The elementary school library is where many students encounter their first favorite books and experience the joy of reading firsthand. A school librarian wanted to better organize her students’ weekly time at the library and, with only about 30 mins for each session, wanted to ensure each student was getting the most out of his or her time. She found that a lot of time was wasted each session as children scrambled to enter the library and find seats for each week’s activities and reading time.
The librarian generally spent each 30-minute session providing students with library lessons, reading to the children, and then providing them with time to look for a book to check out for the week. Organizing the children quickly and efficiently was sometimes a struggle, until she discovered Koeckritz Rugs’ Children’s Crazy Carpet Circle Seats. She was able to set up tidy and effective spaces for group reading sessions as well as quiet personal reading time after students checked out their weekly library books.
Library time may be limited, but it is still an invaluable part of every student’s elementary school experience, exposing them to new ideas, new stories, and lessons that only good books can teach. This librarian took advantage of the creative seating solutions that circle seats offer to streamline every lesson, allowing her students to quickly find seats and enjoy peaceful personal space during individual seating time.
Carpet circles are comfortable, multi-functional, and incredibly useful in any elementary school library. They may even become occasional learning tools, allowing librarians to have students choose different color circles based on the types of books they read or arranging group activities easily. Crazy Carpet Circle Seats add new layers of versatility, fun, engagement, and functionality to the elementary school library experience.
